New elearning sessions available for radiographers, radiologists and breast clinicians

In May 2020, the National Breast Imaging Academy (NBIA), in partnership with Health Education England elearning for healthcare (elfh), launched their elearning programme for radiographers, radiologists and breast clinicians.  This is the tenth update about the programme.

Accessed by over 850 practitioners across the UK, the elearning programme consistently receives positive feedback.

  • “Good content especially for those just learning to carry out these procedures.”
  • “I am thrilled with the NBIA, during COVID and lockdown our radiographic staff were able to use it for CPD.”
  • “Very informative, great for anyone looking at working within a breast imaging department.”
  • “Good interactive tool. Videos were helpful and added to the overall learning experience.”

Dr Megan Bydder, the NBIA’s Clinical Lead for the elfh programme, said: “We are really pleased with the take-up of the resources and the positive reaction from users.  Thanks to the breast imaging community who helped us to develop and test the elearning sessions at a rapid pace, we’ve been able to support ongoing learning across the profession during a very challenging time.”

The full programme of elearning sessions is due to be completed in 2021 to support your training needs. If you would like to share your thoughts on the resources and input into the evaluation of the NBIA elearning programme, please visit our survey.
